Geek Of The Week: Emma Watson aka Hermione

For some geeks, this week is all about the countdown to the fifth movie release in one of the most geeky series we've ever seen: Harry Potter. While fans await the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by sipping on Butterbeer and wondering if the chemistry between Harry, Hermione and Ron will be strong as ever, I'm wondering what's next for Emma Watson, the adorable, witty and fun female in the group. This weekend's Parade Magazine featured a cover story, We’re all so grown-up!, which proved the actress and her counterparts are more than ready for adult roles and perfectly happy to acknowledge their eternal geek cred.

Why do we love her? It comes down to geeky girl power. Highlights of the interview include:

  • “There are too many stupid girls in the media,” Watson observes, her dark eyes lighting up. “Hermione’s not scared to be clever. I think sometimes really smart girls dumb themselves down a bit, and that’s bad.”
  • “I’m a bit of a feminist. I’m very competitive and challenging.”
  • “When I was 9 or 10, I would get really upset when they tried to make me look geeky, but now I absolutely love it. I find it’s so much pressure to be beautiful. Hermione doesn’t care what she looks like. She’s a complete tomboy.”

She's so blessed. I bet she has no idea how lucky she is! She's rich, famous, pretty, smart... I would do anything to be in her shoes! She also plays the lead character in the coolest movie series ever! I'm a die hard Harry Potter fan, love the books, the movies, everything about it! But she's theone person who's part of the whole deal who makes me so jealous. I love her style and her hair, though. But, I don't hate her. I'mjust saying I wish I was her....

I hear she's really really nice. That's cool, she's still got her beliefs, rather than just wanting fame.

I would believe her message more if she hadn't been a hardcore partier and drinker since she was 14.

I really hope she goes on to have a career beyond Harry Potter. I think she has a lot of potential to be something besides just another actress!

My brother thinks she is so hot! He goes on about it all day. If he wasn't in Japan right now, I'm sure he would be first in line for HP just to see Emma.
